Friday Once Again!

Hello Friends!

So sorry if it seemed I'd disappeared off the face of the earth this past week!  I realize my last post was on Sunday when I was feeling profound and contemplative and pondering all that I pondered in that blog post!  But here I am, again at Friday when it seems to me I just posted about Friday (really it was a couple weeks ago), in Friday is Fun Day!  Yet there have been several posts since that Friday and now I find I am facing the First of July! Already?  Please tell me if you know, where has the time flown?  I have no idea.  Seems I never really do.  :)  Yet I try to make the most of it!  Happy First of July everyone!

I wanted to let you know that I may not be able to post with great frequency over the course of the coming 6 weeks.  But I will do my best to post as often as I can!  I love blogging!  It's so fun and it's good for me, too. I truly hope it's "good" for you to read my blog!  That would be such a wonderful bonus.  Anyhow, segue there.  LOL  I was going to say, I just started a Full Time Temporary summer job for the next 6 weeks! This is wonderful for me, after having been unemployed except for a short two-week stint of a very enjoyable time working as a floral designer in February!  It's been a LONG time since I held a job lasting more than those two weeks, a job that is full time and outside of the home!  So if you think of it, send warm thoughts and prayers my way!  I am excited.  It's a job related to music, and for me, that is a plus!

Also, I just finished "Catching Fire," the 2nd book in the Hunger Games Trilogy a couple days ago.  Excellent read, just as it's predecessor was!  I started the third book, "Mockingjay" but am only a few pages in since I haven't had a great deal of time to read for any reason let alone fun in the past week.  However, I am sure I will enjoy this third and final book of the trilogy as much as the first two!  Will let you know once I'm done!

To wrap up for today, I want to give a shout out to two people.  First off, to my wonderful husband and best friend, Joe!  You can read Joe's blog at Portraits and Perceptions.  Joe is a recent blogger, but he's got some interesting contributions including a recent 3 or 4 part series of posts on the topic of Love!  Yes, Love!  Great topic for anyone and everyone alive today! :)  I also wanted to shout out to Sarah Elizabeth over at Daughter of the King. I have truly enjoyed following her at her blog, and though I recently joined, she was kind and welcoming and has even made me a beautiful blog button so that I can be amongst her list of blog sponsors or something like that!  haha I am SO new at all this!  Anyhow, I have a button on the right side of her blog.  And it is beautiful and creative.  Hope to have a button for her on my blog soon, right Sarah Elizabeth?  :)  Thanks!

Have a lovely Friday, everyone! Stop in and tell me whatever you want today, be it what you've read lately and loved or hated, either one (LOL) or what you plan to read or if you stopped in at Joe's blog or Sarah Elizabeth's blog due to my shout-out or if you're working a summer job you love or any job you love, etc!  You know how much I enjoy hearing from you and your comments brighten my day!  Each and every one! 


  1. Congrats on the job! Especially since it has to do with music. How awesome and what a blessing!!!

  2. Hoping your job is going well... I just sent you a FB message with directions on how to post my blog button on your blog. :)

    I really liked 'Catching Fire' and I'm also only a little ways into 'Mockingjay' too so far.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

    -Sarah Elizabeth

  3. @Carissa: Thanks! I'm excited about it! And it seems a good fit. Though it's temporary, I'm grateful!

    @Sarah Elizabeth: Thank you! It's going well so far! I will look for your FB message.

    Yes, "Catching Fire" was great and so far, "Mockingjay" is good! Neat that we're about the same ways into the book!

    Happy Independence Day everyone!

  4. That is awesome about a job doing something you love! Praise the Lord!

  5. @LeAnna: Yes! I'm grateful. It's not a perfect job, there is a lot of time "on my hands" where I did ask for permission to read or something and was told no, so that's a bummer. But it's temporary and I'm grateful as it helps with income!

    @Heather: Thanks, girl! ;)

  6. Congrats, my dear. I'm happy for you!

  7. @Andie: Thanks! The job actually just ended on the day you posted congrats! It was a temporary job, but I was grateful for it and it was good while it lasted! Hope you are doing well! :)
